City College has a strong and active research group in atomic and
molecular physics. Research in this field has led to the understanding
of atomic and molecular structure and interactions. In addition, atomic
physics has provided a testing ground for fundamental theories such as
quantum electrodynamics and unified gauge theories of the electro-weak
Professor Michael Lubell. Studies of photon interactions with atoms, ions and molecules carried out at the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National. Specific lines of inquiry are quantum chaos in two-electron systems photo-dissociation of green-house gas molecules.
